ONLINE Poetic Dreamscapes
Do you ever wake up with just the fragment of a dream lingering in your consciousness? What kind of poetry would you write if you could wander barefoot through the dream imaginarium? A world coloured Chagall blue, a world of underwater breathing, a world as evoked by Margaret Atwood in her poem Variations on the Word Sleep. A world where you could have a glass of wine with Pan or converse with your long-gone ancestors.
Come ready to release preconceptions and inhibitions, and allow your writing to take wing in the wordless landscape of dreams.
This is an interactive online course using the Zoom web conferencing platform.
